Meet the Senior Caregivers at Comfort Keepers Home Care in Cary, NC

Our team is specially trained to provide expert care right in your home

Every one of our senior caregivers is professional and well trained. We conduct a thorough screening and interviewing process to identify the best seniors caregivers, and only those who pass this process go on to complete training to deliver our special brand of home care and become Comfort Keepers®. What truly sets our senior caregivers apart, though, is their natural gift for caring for others. 

All  Comfort Keepers pass extensive background checks and complete continuing education. They are bonded, insured and covered by workers' compensation insurance to protect our clients and their families.

Nancy draws on her 30 years experience as a Registered Nurse to support our Comfort Keepers team and family of clients to ensure our plans to care for our clients are consistent with their medical and functional needs. She is a diligent advocate for our clients and a trusted advisor for our care team.

 

Nancy’s first job as a caregiver was in NY as a nurse's assistant on a 40-bed Alzheimer's unit. It turned out to be an enlightening, challenging, unforgettable, and humbling experience and was the start of her lifelong passion for taking care of and working with the elderly. After college, she moved to Boston and worked as a nurse at Beth Israel Hospital on a neuromedical/neurosurgical unit; then moved to the LA area and worked mostly in home health care in some of the best and worst neighborhoods of LA. She also did a brief stint (per her husband) as a "nurse to the stars" working in a doctor's office that had a lot of celebrities as patients! She moved to Raleigh in 1996 and continued working in home health care and as a staff development educator at Rex Home Services until having her boys, now ages 18 and 16. Her work life became more sporadic as taking care of her boys, especially her second son (who has autism), took a significant amount of time and energy. Though she continued to work off and on as a nurse in a variety of settings, her heart has always stayed in home health/home care. She recently completed a certification in Guided Care Nursing with Johns Hopkins University. . In her spare time, Nancy enjoys music, reading, watching comedies, walking her dog, and spending time with friends and family.
